"I'm drinking the Chancer" one might say proudly.
"Well I'm drinking the Nine Tales" another one might respond.
"Shouldn't that be Nine Tails, as in 'Cat o' Nine Tails' if we're referencing James Squire's convict heritage?"
"I did say Nine Tails"
"Oh that's right, this is the documentation of a hypothetical conversation so I would have heard that phonetically and not seen the word written, my mistake"
According to the James Squire website Indian Pale Ale (or 'the Stowaway') actually originated from England, however the fact that it was bound for India is how it came to be so named. Apparently IPA was brewed to contain extra alcohol so that it would survive the long sea-journey from England to India.
